We’re excited to announce that work has now started on site at Holbein Gardens.
Working alongside Barr Gazetas for Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, the project is a total redevelopment and one storey extension of a 1980s office building to deliver 25,000 sq ft of modern workspace. The designs centre on retaining the existing four-storey structure, re-use of materials and the integration of biodiverse greening.
An early whole life carbon assessment has minimised upfront embodied carbon, meaning the development will exceed the LETI Pioneer Project embodied carbon target of 500kgCO2/m2. This has been achieved in part through the use of low-carbon construction materials such as cross laminated timber, CEMFREE Concrete and Thermalite aircrete blockwork.
Embodied carbon has been further reduced through the reuse of existing steelwork from the building and use of re-purposed steels from Grosvenor’s nearby Bermondsey site, a pioneering initiative seeking to maximise the reuse of steel across their portfolio of projects.
We’re looking forward to delivering the building alongside our project partners, working to achieve Grosvenor’s net zero carbon and zero waste goals.
